That might have something to do with Hornsby having a career of his own . He didn't need them. And, though I am simply speculating, unlike Keith and Brent, Hornsby did not have a self destructive drug habit ( I could be wrong, but I doubt it).

I think so too. Funny but I was DREADING the first show with Bruce, thought it was a sign of the band getting all yuppie wussed out and losing their edge like Clapton or Bonnie Raitt. I had seen Bruce with the Range open for John Fogerty. While I did like his big hit ( still do ) "the way it is" , his set was BORING.So I was expecting that infliction. What I got instead was to hear the band re-energized and I got to hear the band with the awesome grand that I had missed never getting to see them with Keith and without all the synthesizers. I have a personal preference to the tone and sound of piano rather than keyboards. I've never been a fan of keyboards, they tend to over power. I only like keys as any kind of lead when it's piano. Anyway, Bruce blew me away. Acted like he belonged there. The way he did it wasn't like a jerk but a good confidence that served the music well.
